Typical street cafe from outside. Inside looks very casual but love the way cafe table are dressed with cloths once you order food. Can order anything from pizza to more formal. Staff generally attentive. Reasonably priced. Not the most exciting food. Chicken was dry. Not...for a special occasion but reliable.More

This place offers a wide range of choice of delicious typical Spanish-local food. The service is attentive and friendly, in particular, Antonio, who professionally guided us through this experience.

I never tire of eating here. You can go gastro or stick to pizza. The staff are awesome. So interesting to watch the ham, jaamon, being professionally cut. Love it!

It's never easy trying to find a good place to eat in a new town. Whilst spending time near Monforte a friend suggested Polar to have lunch and it became the go to place in Monforte. Never had a bad dish, there was always plenty...on the plate and inexpensive to say the least. If you like a beer, don't forget to try the Estrella Galicia on tap.More

Another unexpected surprise. Food loads better than you would expect. Pizza must be tried, jamon “salad” is to die for with so much jamon...and a bit of tomatoes. Scallops are amazing and so is beef. Try it all! Big portions. Nice surprise - they have...Estella 0.0% on a tap! Yum!More

Be patient because the whole experience is gonna take about 2-3 hours.. We were sitting in a table for x 4...this is the second time I have had the privalige to visit this place...looks like a coffee/cafe shop from the outside....but one big surprise awaits...you! Where we sat we could see the ham being carved!! And as each waiter/res passed view each meal being served from the chef preparing the dishes.The prawns Pil Pil...and the steak and Roquefort Sauce was really lovely....the only reason for the 4 star is that we were a little cramped around the table.partially sitting in the walkway that was not the most conducive!! However we had beers and house vinos which were of good quality...Thank you for the memorable experience..More

I am British with family in Monforte de Lemos and we visit this lovely town every year. Polar is without doubt one of the best restaurants and the most popular. The food is excellent whether it is enjoyed in the bar area or in the...dining room. We have been SO MANY times (mainly breakfast or lunch) and never dissapointed. Food quantity is more than sufficient and considering they are always very busy, the service is tops.More
